I am not 100% sure I got your question right. But I will try to answer
anyway. You can do the following:

* Clone Genode from genodelabs/genode. This is what you most likely
  have done already,
* Create a fork of Genode at GitHub,
* Add the URL of your fork as a "remote" to your local repository
  (see the 'git remote' command),
* Fetch the differences between your local repository and the
  remote one, e.g., your fork (see the 'git fetch' command)
* Switch to a specific topic branch (see the 'git checkout' and
  'git branch' commands)
* Upload the commits of your topic branch to your fork (see the
  'git push' command)

In short: There is no need to download the entirety of Genode again
because 'git fetch' downloads just the differences.

But all that is not specific to Genode but general Git-Fu. Hence,
Christian suggested to consult Git-related resources for help.
